In surprising and most excellent news, USA Networks honcho Jeff  Wachtel made a surprise announcement that brought the thousands of fans in Comic-Con’s Ballroom 20 to raucus applause.

After explaining to fans that what the USA Networks had decided was that “we need more Bruce Campbell,” the decision was made to go forward with a Burn Notice prequel movie that will focus on Sam Axe, the lovable, womanizing, beer guzzling former Navy SEAL.

The plot is said to revolve around Sam’s last mission as a SEAL, revealing just why he left the run and gun side of the business and become confidant to a spy.

Show creator Matt Nix promised us that, as a military-centric movie, Bruce Campbell will be armed to the teeth with firearms, but he also turned to Bruce and, almost asking permission, said “I was thinking of giving you a chainsaw.” Applause all around again.

And just how did the stylish and always charming Bruce Campbell respond? By making it rain money on a few ladies (that was actually unrelated, more later) and by teasing through that trademark grin “USA finally got their shit together.”

This was the big ticket news from the Burn Notice panel and really, probably the best possible announcement they could have made.
